I just saw Dragon Age for the XBox 360 at Wal-Mart for $39.95 today. I'm in Morris County, New Jersey. I didn't check the PC version cost, but the PS3 version was still $59.95.

They also had Borderlands for the XBox 360 for $29.95. Several other games had "price drop" tags, but those are the only two I remember the prices of.


Hmm, walmart.com reports that borderlands and dragon age are not sold in stores so I guess they were clearancing them out. Now, do I want to go on a wild goose chase for games I already own (so I can return to best buy/target)?

Yeah. Probably.

Don't waste your money at Lamestop on this for $50. Best Buy will have it on Black Friday for $30 along with some other games that are newer releases. Best Buy is the place to be on Black Friday.

Your negativity makes me understand why I hate people. You guys all have a right to your opinion, but let people do what they want. Some of us have lives and have things to do other than stand in lines, or prebuy games just to PM them. So any deal is still a deal.

That is all.

KAKOOOOOOW!

I did get this for 50 but they refused to pricematch the website for Demon souls. I don't get all this shit with places not pricematching their own fucking websites. The guy told word for word "We don't pricematch gamestop.com it's a different company"

WTF

Ahh return fraud. The morals are low with this one.

And you are a reason that I hate people.

You can do whatever you want with your money, I could care less. I don't know you or care what you do with your money. I wasn't being negative at all, yes this is a deal considering the game is $10 off the retail price and yes I do hate Gamestop. I was just simply informing people that might not know, that Best Buy will be selling Dragon Age: Origins for $29.99 on Black Friday and yes in case math isn't your strongest area, that's $20 less than Gamestops price.

Good deal considering that you will get a lot of gameplay on the game since it is BioWare. Also BB is selling it for 34.99 on Black Friday not 29.99. Some people may just buy it at Gamestop for that price, instead of waiting for Black Friday and waiting outside early in the morning. As for me I am going to try my luck and see if I can get it at BB when black friday comes around.

There are black friday threads though for that, is there not? Your point is moot, and yes you are being negative. But I digress you're one of many so whats the point. Enjoy your hate.

Alright, dude. You are just bitter for whatever reason. I'll enjoy my so called "hate" and that's the last of my attention you will get.

125125, My bad. I have a friend who works at Best Buy tell me the prices. I believe Brutal Legend was $30 though, but regardless $35 is a steal for Dragon Age and they will also have L4D2 for that price. :D

You should get it on Amazon, not G$. Amazon has no sales tax and free shipping ;)

Amazon does have to collect sales tax when shipping to some states. just an FYI

Stone Prisoner DLC ($15 otherwise) only comes with new copies of Dragon Age, to deter people from buying the game used.

-edit- Changed Warden's Keep to Stone Prisoner, cause I was wrong.

I think its a great idea that we will see more of. More developers and publishers should be doing this to get their bottom lines up. Include "exclusive" DLC in-box to deter those who will rent or buy used.

Actually I'm just tired of all the threadcrapping that's been going on lately and sadly I chose your antics to berate. I apologize if I come of like an ass, I am an ass, but that does not reserve me the right to belittle or subjugate. Just keep the deal the way it is you know, I know these are going to be available cheaper, its inevitable. I think some people just appreciate thing like this now and again, if you dont, great.

One thing that irritates me about Dragon Age is the way they integrate DLC. For example, the $7 inventory DLC provides a huge boon to players but nonetheless it is DLC and cannot be acquired any other way, even if you buy the game new. Another thing is that you will meet an NPC who gives you a quest that is obtained through DLC...even if you don't have the said DLC.

Okay, so trade 2 in and get it for 20 does not stack with it.

Yeah, my mistake.

Stone Prisoner is $15, included with new copies.

Warden's Keep/extra storage is $7, NOT included with new copies.

That I don't have a problem with. As long as you can reasonably complete the game without the DLC, I see no issue. It's left up to the consumer whether or not they wanna shell out the extra dough for something that might make the game easier.

Another thing is that you will meet an NPC who gives you a quest that is obtained through DLC...even if you don't have the said DLC.


Now, that I don't like.

I'm about 60 hours into this now, at level 17. And I have to say this game is amazing. You really have to put the time in to get something out of it though, this is not a pick up and play for anyone kinda game, it's a hardcore RPG, the quests are good though, the story is amazing, the graphics are not as bad as I thought they were gonna be.

You have to have time for this game though, right now I'm unemployed and outta school so I've been dumping countless hours into it haha. It gets better and better as it goes on, the quests get more and more serious, your decisions really matter, you'll feel bad for certain characters, etc. So far it's one of the best games I've played in years, but there can be dull parts, you just have to stick with it to truly get the most out of it.

It reminds me of Baldurs Gate a lot, and then even more of KotOR, and Mass Effect. It's Bioware that's for sure. hmm, I like it much better than Mass Effect, but still they can't top KotOR.

Great game though so far, I feel like I'm close to the end so I'm gonna go back to playing now :)

yes I meant co-op, but I just looked to see and see now that there is no co-op, so in that case the PS3 version might be the best one to pick up if it has better graphics and I am unable to play co-op on Xbox live. Anyone have an argument for getting 360 version over ps3?

Pretty much achievements or trophies, I don't really care for either anymore, but since most of my friends own 360's, I usually get exclusives for PS3 so that I can chat with my friends while playing these games.

I do not have a good argument. I just prefer the 360 and its controllers, so I end up getting only PS3 exclusives for the PS3 and everything else for the 360.

The PS3 version is supposed to be largely superior to the Xbox 360 version (graphically and framerate wise), although the PC version is superior to both.

Saw a gutted copy of the CE version at GS. It looks awesome until the slipcover is removed. Yike! The steel case is a letdown, a steelbook wannabe. It's awful the way it opens and hinges.
